Custom 404 Page buggy! (6 posts)

    Hello,

    I am currently working on creating a blog for my GF, and I'm trying to get the custom 404 pages to work, but they only work sometimes.

    I went to the codex and read this thread and I tried what they said and different variations, but when I test the 404 it sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't.

    Here is the URL: http://www.amandajeankelly.com

    I am going to create a section called books and one called contact. The links are already on the navbar, but the pages don't exist yet, so use those to test the 404 page.

    Try clicking on either of those pages a few times. Sometimes the 404 works, other times it doesn't.

    If anyone can help me figure out what the problem is, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    More Info:

    here is what my .htaccess file looks like:

    -----------------------------------------
    # BEGIN WordPress
    ErrorDocument 404 /index.php?error=404
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress
    -----------------------------------------

    My 404.php page is in the same directory as the index page in the theme I am editing (/amanda/wp-content/themes/default)

    Your homepage is pretty buggy, also. Sometimes it's outlined by an orange square...sometimes not.
    Is your header image the correct size?

    It's not buggy, I was working on it, and I sometimes outline things to see what the div is doing.
